This event has been postponed and will now take place on September 22nd.

Here is a message from the artist:

Hey pixels, sadly I’ve had to postpone the US/Canada/UK tour in April/May. However, here are the new dates for UK (US/Canada will be announcing soon!). I hope you can still make it – your original tickets and VIP packages will still be valid for all rescheduled dates. I cant wait to see u !!!!! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

“Being east Asian and trying to be a pop singer in the UK where there is no precedent has sometimes been quite hard,” says London-based musician and model Rina Sawayama. “There aren’t many east Asian singers in the western pop world.”

Sawayama’s music, which she describes as “cute R&B with a subliminal pop sheen”, takes influence from her early childhood in Tokyo, where she weaned herself on J-pop (having “literally missed the boat” on the Spice Girls). Her glistening track “Cyber Stockholm Syndrome”, the first from her planned album, tingles with a Justin Timberlake-esque guitar hook and spotlights anxiety in the digital age.

Please note, Rina Sawayama is partnering with PLUS1 so that £1 from every ticket sold on her upcoming tour will go to support ClientEarth and their work to protect the planet and the people who live on it. www.clientearth.org.
